The Utes have a great women's gymnastics program, but it's been almost
20 years since they won an NCAA championship. The Red Rocks have come close on
several occasions since 1995, but UCLA, Alabama and Georgia always seem to be
just slightly better every year.
No reason to panic. It was the first meet of the season, and when the Lady Utes
could have fallen apart, they regrouped. UCLA is a deeper team, they were at
home, and they had a first meet under their belts. I'm encouraged that
Georgia and Corrie finished 2-3 in the all-around. It's a very young team
for the Red Rocks, this year. Poise is a product of experience and maturity,
and, on bars, poise was not present.
